December | Aileen Fisher




I like days
with a snow-white collar,
and nights when the moon
is a silver dollar,
and hills are filled
with eiderdown stuffing
and your breath makes smoke
like an engine puffing.

I like days
when feathers are snowing,
and all the eaves
have petticoats showing,
and the air is cold,
and the wires are humming,
but you feel all warm ...
with Christmas coming.

{December, by Aileen Fisher}

    1. Cool! I'll go read it. :) (This poem actually isn't by me, I put the author's name in the post title but I guess that wasn't clear....)
